Toronto received a great treat today with British Thespian Richard Armitage visiting Toronto for the Canadian leg of the Press Tour for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Appearing bright and early at Union Station this morning to present an installation by Warner Bros.’ which includes visuals from the eagerly-awaited Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) Blockbuster. 100 devout Fans – many who got the tip here – were lucky enough to score passes to tonight’s Canadian Premiere from our Friend Maurie Sherman from KISS 92.5.
The Method Actor is a familiar face to many having landed a role in last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger, but it is his breakthrough role as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit Trilogy which will make Armitage a household name. Arriving at the Station shortly after 8:00 AM amidst the bustle of Commuter Traffic, he caused a commotion among Onlookers, many asking “Who is that?”. Oh trust me, they’ll soon know.
Armitage appeared dapper and handsome in vest and suit with all eyes migrating towards his blue eyes – looking like a perfect Cousin to Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. Generously he posed for Photos and Autographs with Fans new and old. An interesting tidbit is that he happens also to be a Multi-Instrumentalist, playing both the Flute and Cello.
Fans are welcome to visit the Roots Flagship Store at 100 Bloor Street West throughout the day where Passes will be handed-out to the Premiere. For one day only, the Shop will be hosting Lenticular Displays for The Hobbit, so don’t fret – it’s not too late! Word is, at some point the Actor might even surface at the Store…
So I happened to nab an Autograph for one lucky Reader. All you have to do is click “like” on this Post at Mr. Will Wong on Facebookbefore January 1, 2013 to enter. Good luck. All are welcome!

At long last, we get a detailed look at The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! This brand new two-and-a-half minute Trailer for the latest from looks stellar.
The Adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the Wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen Dwarves led by the legendary Warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the Goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of ingenuity and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum‘s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
